Sometimes it’s best to be ‘hands on’ when creating custom sounds. I’m usually hands on with drums and percussion, but in this case I was working on the game over sound for the iPhone kids game app “Blackhole Joe“.
I have some great sounding virtual synths, but the ones I tried came up short for what I was hearing in my head. I needed something that sounded like an old school video game sound from the early 1980s.
So I rigged up my trusty old Micromoog, and quickly dialed and performed the sound. God bless Robert Moog!
